Infrared Retroreflective (IR) Flag


Helps Soldiers identify friendly forces when using Infrared sensors during hours of limited visibility.


The Infrared Retroreflective (IR) Flag is an attachable patch that enables the identification of friendly forces. The flag becomes visible in dark environments when observed with near-infrared vision systems, such as Night Vision Goggles (NVGs) and near-infrared illuminators.

The IR Flag is made of micro-prismatic, retroreflective black polymeric film contrasted with opaque desert sand stars and stripes.

The IR Flag, which is 3.5 inches long by 2 inches wide, attaches to military uniforms with hook fastener tape.
